Devised by Performance Frequency, Sounding Cov gathers as many people as possible on the anniversary of Coventry’s Blitz, to sing a new City into existence, based on the power of Sanskrit mantra. Interested in clearing traumas of the past, from the City Centre’s land, this community music project intends to saturate the City with sound based on healing, joy and clarity. Sara McCarthy, Director of Performance Frequency says, “At Performance Frequency, we understand the power of music and vibration. We know that we can shape a city, by the words and sounds that come out of our mouths. 71 years ago, Coventry’s City centre was vibrated for 11 hours, by 500 tonnes of lead falling from the sky. This year, we vibrate this city by 11 hours of non-stop singing with powerful words to clear obstacles, relieve distresses, instil confidence and create peace.

We are looking to double the number of people who came along to last year’s event. The youngest was a baby and the oldest in her 70’s. As well as singing, we are asking for people to make a wish for Coventry.“ Everyone is welcome to this event. It takes place at The Albany pub in Earlsdon, on Monday 14 November at 7pm to 6am the next morning. There will be 1 hour of silence after it. Meet at 6.30pm for warming up.

The Coventry Artspace 1-Hour Residencies are for artists and creative practitioners to spend a short period of time and space away from their usual studio/work environment - exploring practise with other artists through discussion and practical exercises. Taking place in pubs of interest, the idea is that artists can continue to socialise after the residency is complete. Based on suggestions from the last event, the next residency will be working with a large scale map of Coventry to highlight places of influence or significance, stories, tales, words and inspiration in relation to practise. Places are limited so book now by emailing Nadia Wazera, who is organising the event for us: ------------------------------------------------------
